From: 2008-09-03 to 2008-09-05

Venue: Altinyunus Hotel, Cesme-izmir-Turkey

Summary: Rivers are continuously eroding or depositing under normal natural conditions. However, these changes can be either reversible or irreversible. Reversible changes result from the natural cycle of water and sediment runoff from a catchment. However, irreversible changes normally occur under natural conditions in the upper or lower reaches of a river.  Within the context of reversible and irreversible water-sediment processes, Fluvial Hydraulics was born as one of the fundamental discipline in engineering practice and scientific research. Recent developments in fluid and sediment mechanics have provided Fluvial Hydraulics the integration of basic phenomenal knowledge into practical engineering works. New engineering tools revealed from advances in physical understanding, computation methods and measuring techniques.
River Flow 2008 will be organized with the support of Fluvial Hydraulic Section (FHS) of the International Association of Hydraulic Engineering and Research (IAHR). This conference intends to be a forum for all researchers involved in River Hydraulics studies. It would be an opportunity to meet together for scientists working on both complementary aspects of hydrodynamic processes and sediment transport phenomena in rivers, using theoretical, experimental or numerical approaches. The conference will concentrate on the hydraulics fundamentals, its application in engineering or environmental related problems.
The conference, River Flow 2008 in Turkey, will be a three-day-long simulation of the work of the scientists studying on Fluvial Hydraulics. The conference will begin on Wednesday, September 3. Technical sessions will be held in four parallel tracks from Wednesday to Friday. During the conference, one or two plenary lectures will be planned each day to deliver by expert scientists. Master classes, which are an important feature of the River Flow Conference Series, will be held the day preceding the formal opening of the Conference.
